Good morning and happy #IdesofMarch. Arguably the most recognizably “Shakespearean” scene in #GameofThrones and ASOIAF is Jon’s assassination by the Night’s Watch, which visually and thematically recalls Caesar’s assassination by members of the Roman Senate. Let’s talk about it! https://t.co/zCP4zLd9Sg
“My soul, guard against pomp and glory.
And if you can’t curb your ambitions,
at least pursue them hesitantly, cautiously.”
– C.P. Cavafy, “The Ides of March”, translated by Edmund Keeley and Philip Sherrard. #poetry #Greece #IdesOfMarch
#IdesOfMarch in 44 BC: Brutus—looking a little dashing in this portrait, if I may say—and a host of co-conspirators assassinate Julius Caesar which prompted a civil war and paved the way for Octavian (later Augustus) to take power.
Once thought fake, two gold specimens of Brutus’ "Ides of March" coin are now known. This one was worn as a pendant in antiquity; perhaps by a patrician sympathetic to the assassins’ cause? #roman #numismatics #IdesOfMarch
Julius Caesar was assassinated on this day in 44 BC, stabbed to death by Roman senators who feared (among other things) that Caesar would overthrow the senate and rule as a totalitarian. #IdesofMarch #apworld #aplatin

... Beware the ides of March.
"What man is that?"
A soothsayer bids you beware the ides of March.
"Set him before me. Let me see his face." ... "What sayest thou to me now? Speak once again."
Beware the ides of March ...
It's the #IdesOfMarch - which didn't bode very well for old Julius Caesar.
But how will The Devil fare against Brutus and Cassius?
You'll just have to wait until September to find out.
I know. I'm awful 👿
Today is the #IdesofMarch, the day #JuliusCaesar was stabbed to death in 44 B.C.E. by a band of Roman senators who saw Caesar as a tyrant who was a threat to the Roman Republic. Ironically, the assassination that was meant to save the Republic actually resulted in its downfall.
"Beware the Ides of March." This quote is from Shakespeare's tragedy Julius Caesar (1599). The warning is uttered by a soothsayer who warns the Roman leader that his life is in danger when March 15th, the Ides of March, rolls around. #IdesofMarch #OTD

Beware of the #idesofmarch & taxes plaguing employee health coverage. We call on #Congress to repeal #Cadillactax & #HIT. These #taxes increase premiums & co-sharing for millions of families with #esc. #Voice4ESC #donttaxmyhealthcare #StopTheHIT
Casca: There's Mark Antony.
Cassius: I never know what to say to people at funerals.
Brutus: Me too. I'm terrible.
Casca: Just say you're sorry and move on. [To Mark Antony] He'll be in our prayers.
Brutus: [To Mark Antony] I'm sorry for your loss. Move on.
It's the #IdesofMarch and I'm reflecting on many years back while in Rome when I saw Julius Caesar's murder spot. It was a big deal to me because I had studied it so much in 8th grade along with everything else during the Roman Empire. #bewaretheidesofmarch
It's the #IdesofMarch! Why not celebrate by supporting an #indiepublisher that #givesashit instead of stabbing an old friend in the back like they did to Julius Caeser? Just a thought.
Of all the Shakespeare tragedies I had to read in high school, #JuliusCaesar was probably my favorite. Here are some interesting facts about the #IdesOfMarch for all of the history or literature buffs. https://t.co/WWjmfKZ7xP
Has it really been one year since I declared my #Classics major on the #IdesofMarch? Since March 15 last year, I've gotten a few more Classics books, picked up a Classic sense of fashion, and learned so much through @CHC_Classics! Looking forward to many more adventures with you!
